“Purple Rain irresistibly exudes sex, sweat and swagger in equal measure.” – Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
In Purple Rain, Prince (aka His Royal Badness) stars as “The Kid,” a hard luck boy from Minneapolis who dresses like a sexy pirate and is desperate to catch his big break and launch his musical career. He’s also desperate for love and really angry about his messed up parents, whose fighting sounds like doves crying. Luckily, he meets a beautiful and ambitious young singer named Apollonia and it seems like everything just might work out. But the road to stardom is never smooth, and things are going to get a bit bumpy for our hard-rocking hero (thanks to some heavy competition from his musical arch-rival, Morris, who definitely wants The Kid to know what Time it is!) before he’s able to conquer the Minneapolis scene and bathe in the Purple Rain! One of the greatest rock ‘n roll movies of all-time, featuring a scalding hot menu of incredible tunes including When Doves Cry, Darling Nikki, Let’s Go Crazy, I Would Die 4 U, Purple Rain and more, not to mention a mesmerizing, funkifying debut movie performance by Prince, Purple Rain will forever have the power to make us ALL go crazy! (Dir. by Albert Mangoli, 1984, USA, 111 mins., Rated R)
